Can you plant winter wheat in the spring?
In this regard, can you plant wheat in spring?
Spring wheat is planted in early spring, as soon as possible, and harvested in late summer. Spring wheat is sometimes dormant seeded in late November or early December, when the ground is cold enough to inhibit germination until spring. Soil temps should be around 36˚F to 40˚F. for germination.
Secondly, how early can winter wheat be planted?
Winter wheat is seeded in late August or early September into a shallow seedbed to allow the plant to access enough water to germinate quickly and grow for four to five weeks.
Winter wheat does best when planted in the fall, and spring wheat is planted in early spring. Wheat can be broadcast at a rate of 90 to 120 lbs./acre for a pure stand or drilled at a rate of 60 to 90 lbs./acre (the photo at the top shows a plot planted with a grain drill).
